Icy Roads Have Been Leading to Traffic Accidents in the Greater Kansas City Area
Ice on the roads presents drivers with some of the most challenging driving conditions any driver can hope to face. Failure to have adequate breaking distance or travelling to fast, among other mistakes, can lead to serious traffic accidents. The greater Kansas City area has had a rash of auto accidents during the most recent weather event. Most of these traffic accidents occurred during icy conditions. Even with road crews diligently working to salt or treat the roads there may still be patches of ice on the road. In some ways, these ice patches mixed in with otherwise well treated roads can present drivers with an unexpected change in driving conditions with little or no warning. In such a situation an accident may be unavoidable. However, in most situations all drivers would benefit from driving at a rate of speed below what they are used to driving as this is likely to reduce the number of accidents.

Kansas City Wide Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Have you been injured on the job in the Kansas City area? Is so, then you should speak with a workers’ compensation attorney. Do not trust that your employer or their insurer will do the right thing. More than likely they will attempt to get you to settle for far less than a on the job injury of your type is worth.
Under the law, the employer has the right to decide where to send you for treatment. Consequently, the employer will likely send you to a doctor that will recommend the most conservative treatment possible. The most conservative treatment possible usually involves the cheapest and slowest treatment available. This can be a long and drawn out process for the employer.
Eventually, the employer’s doctor will determine that an employee has reached maximum medical improvement and issue a workers’ compensation rating. This rating is more than likely going to be on the low side, which is to the benefit of the employer. This is because compensation under the workers’ compensation law is directly correlated to how high a disability rating is.
Also, some employers use doctors that only give impairment ratings, which is a different type of rating and is always lower than a workers’ compensation rating. That is why it is important to get a lawyer involved in your case to make sure you are getting the right treatment and ratings. Your work comp attorney will order all your medical records and more than likely decide to send you for an independent medical evaluation by a doctor that is connected to your employer. That way you will be sure to have at least two medical opinions concerning your condition.
